4. Understanding Venus

To start understanding the planet-energy Venus, we need words, and more specifically verbs. 

Venus attracts, charms, values, glues, enjoys, seduces, loves, likes, feels, relates, sings, paints, touches, tastes, decorates, dresses up, is beautiful (and knows it), has fun, chats, socializes, lazes around, eats... and owns.

 

Venus, like Mars, desires, wants, makes love and competes (in a feminine way, as you understand). Mars wants to conquer, Venus wants to have. Venus wants to bind, to attach, to keep...

 

Do you get the spirit of Venus? I suggest you let your mind wander into daydreams now. Follow the threads.... all the knowledge is available now!

How would a Venusian child behave at school? Would he or she be focused and thorough or easily bored and reluctant to put much effort into their work? How would her clothes look like? How about his/her hair?

 

How would a Venusian girl let a boy know she finds him attractive? Would she be straightforward or play at "catch me if you can"?

What if it's the boy who has a lot of Venus energy, how will he be?

He would probably be a beautiful and attractive guy, however, he might refrain from expressing this girly energy too much. In this case, he will love very Venusian girls. When we don't incarnate our own energies, we chose partners and friends who express them for us...

Venus in the chart of a man is likely to express his tastes in matter of love.

What kind of jobs, what kind of hobbies would a Venus person more enjoy? Boxing or dancing? Climbing a mountain or going to the movies? Going to a silent spiritual retreat or gossiping on the phone? ....

If Venus was an animal, which would it be? Maybe a doe..or a black panther according to the mood! 

You can ask yourselves all kinds of questions.. and if you've got the spirit of this energy, you know the answers.

Do you know Venus' favorite song?

 

"I want to be loved by you,

Just you and nobody else but you

I want to be loved by you

Alone.... poo poo pi doo!

I want to be kissed by you

Just you, nobody else but you

I want to be loved by you

Alone...

I couldn't aspire

To anything higher

Than to fill a desire to

Make you my own

I want to be loved by you,

Just you and nobody else but you

I want to be loved by you

Alone..." .

 

Have you noticed the words "Make you my own"? Venus, and especially Venus-Taurus, wants to own. Venus is possessive. She wants to have. She loves to conquer, however she wants to keep her conquest...forever! She would eat you...

 

Now, as an energy, Venus is about more than just romantic songs and stories. Venus is the law of attraction in our birth chart. Marilyn Monroe was said to be flirting with everything. Venus is the energy of how we flirt with life.

Venus in our chart tells how we manage to get what we want delivered by others, or by the universe itself!

Venus shows what we value. In some way, when we fall in love, that's because we see qualities we value in a person, or in whatever we fall for, house, scenery, music, movie....

 Venus is like a beautiful girl who loves, let's say, chocolate. She has absolutely no inner conflict about it. She loves chocolate, and chocolate happens.. Now, instead of chocolate, it can be money, good jobs, friends, opportunities to visit far away countries, opportunities to get laid, books, information, ideas, antics, whatever we love we value and attract by the magic of Venus.

The only reason we don't get what we want when we don't is that we are conflicted inside. For a start, we don't love ourselves enough. We don't value ourselves enough. If Venus in our natal chart is in a difficult position, we will struggle with self esteem issues. We may feel fears as fear, when you think of it is nothing but a negative desire. 

Venus is not the only energy. There are other planets with possibly conflicting agendas... However, if was possible to let Venus govern alone, by the power of the law of attraction, we would see all our desires come true effortlessly. Then we would become fat, decadent and extremely bored! 

 

If there is only one key word to remember about Venus, it is "Value". We don't value things, ourselves and other people intellectually. We like, or love. Valuing is a feeling. 

Venus is a relationship expert. If you remember only two key words for Venus, let them be "Value" and "Relationship". Venus wants to "Get in touch".

If you can remember three words, remember "Glue" as well. Venus is this energy that glue things and people together, using the magic of feelings.

 

Ah yes, please, remember also "Harmony". That's all what Venus wishes for, in love, in bed and in art galleries. Harmony. In music as well indeed... Because Venus wants to enjoy. 

 

Remember Enjoy!

 

 As I said, when Venus plays out, everything becomes as easy as being beautiful and passing the exam without saying much about the topic. All jokes about blondes follow Venus in her wake. Venus makes jealous.

 

By the way, Marilyn Monroe has not that much Venus energy in her own chart. The real Marilyn was not the character she made the world believe in...  

 

Let's carry on with observing life and putting mental tags wherever it may be relevant.

 

Let's go for a walk in the street and look at the buildings. Which ones would we tag "Venus"? Probably not the homeless shelter (which would rather be tagged Neptune, Moon and Pluto). The vintage shop, the fashion academy, the restaurants, the beauty centre, the hair dresser get a "Venus tag".

Venus is good for sales. In my favorite coffee shop, there are only young and pretty women behind the counter. It's all about attracting the customer...

The computer shop would not be tagged Venus but Uranus. Now, imagine adding a bit of Venus energy to a computer... what do you get? ...A computer with a great design, and something like a half bitten forbidden fruit as a logo.

Astrology is a mental yoga. It consists of understanding energies enough to guess what happens when you mix them.

The bank as well will get a Venus tag, as Venus, especially the Taurus side of this energy, loves a well supplied account as much as she loves shopping. Venus in the natal chart tells something about our money.  

On the internet... forget about the porn, that low energy Venus. Staying decent, all the dating sites are tagged Venus.

Look at a body. What parts would you tag Venus? Sensual lips, sensual hips... Any erogenous zone gets the Venus tag. You get the picture in your mind, I won't post any here.

What social institution would be tagged "Venus"? Marriage, and more specifically the honeymoon. After the honeymoon, let's wish Venus will keep sticking around. She doesn't always do.

What emotions and feelings would you give a "Venus" tag"?

What symbols would you associate with Venus? In particular, what element among the four: Fire, Earth, Air and Water? This is a difficult one. Venus is Earth when it rules Taurus, as Earth connects with the physical body and its sensations. Venus is Air when it rules Libra, as relationships happen in the space between people...

 

Before I leave you for today, I would like to insist: you already know everything there is to know about Venus. This energy, like all energies, has been part of our life since we were born. So let's observe and daydream and all the knowledge will follow..

....and now let me just suggest a little visit to the Astro Story page on this website...
